July Favourites

Welcome to my first ever favourites post! This month I've been loving SO many products it was hard to take it down to just a few. So here's what I've been adoring for the month of July!

Sleek Curacao Palette - This is something i purchased on a whim, luckily i love it! I've been playing around with different bright colours in the last week or two mainly using this to do it. My last post was actually a review on this if you want to know more about it.

Urban Decay Naked Palette - Okay... I know everyone's probably sick of hearing about this palette by now. I've never really been a neutral girl until i started using this. Every shade is absolutely stunning and wearable and i don't know how i lived without it (a bit dramatic but you get my point). Half Baked is probably my all time favourite colour from this. I'll shh now because unless you've been living under a rock you've heard all this a million times.

E.l.f High Definition Powder - I've never really been into translucent powders before getting this. I have a little bit of an E.l.f obsession, although i ony really like probably half of their products i have the urge to make an order every time they have a good sale on. I just can't help myself. This really does make my face look and feel silky smooth, I'd definitely recommend checking it out!

Mac Paint Pot in Bare Study - On my lazy days with makeup i will just pop this all over the lid with some liquid liner and I'm good to go. It's a gorgeous pearly nude shade that makes my eyeliner stick ALL day.

Skin79 Super Plus BB Cream - This is probably my HG item. Apart from when i go for a night out i wear this every day. I even mix my Double Wear with this when i do go out to give my skin more moisture. Theres not even words for how much i love this. I've been using my Sigma F80 to apply this lately and it just gives such a flawless finish and removes any darkness or redness from my face. Although if you do suffer with your skin this may not be enough coverage for you.

Benefit's Bella Bamba - I'll do a full review on this soon so I'll keep this short. Love love love love. It's a beautiful watermelon pink and is super pigmented. Probably my favourite blush of all time.

Clinique Happy In Bloom - I love any variation of Happy. I've constantly had a bottle of this since i was about 14 years old and i still love it just as much. It's a lovely light summery fragrance, and i just can't get enough of it!

Sigma F80 & F82 - I'm not gunna say much about these since my next post will hopefully be my review on them. These have completely changed how i apply and wear foundation for the better.

Mac Lipstick in Lustering - I'm not a big lipstick wearer and I've been trying to rectify this lately. Lustering is a gorgeous bright pink shade and has been a good start to converting me to Lipstick!

Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream - I'm just starting my second mini pot of this i got free with Grazia Magazine a little while ago. Although I've really been liking this I'm not sure I'll repurchase it. It feels lovely and cooling on the eye but I've not really noticed a difference. These little tubs were a lovely introduction to eye cream for me and I'll definitely be trying some other brands out to compare.

Claire's Accessories Pocket Watch Necklace - Well I'm not sure if I'm cheating a little bit putting this in because i only got it the other day but i just had to. I've been eyeing up pocket watch type necklaces on ebay now for some time and literally squeeled with excitement when i saw this. I love everything about it down to the little bow. I'll be including this in a mini Jewelry haul soon :)

Benefit's High Beam - Again most of you have heard a lot about this product. It's one of the minis i collected from Glamour Magazine and this is definitely my favourite out of the three. It's basically a gorgeous liquid highlighter and there are a gazillion reviews on it so I'll stop there.

Well this ended up a lot longer than i expected! Which products are your favourites for July? Let me know in comments or link your blog.

Thanks for reading guys.



  1. I am still dying to get the Naked palette!! How lame could I be??!! The Caribbean colors are gorgeous!! Love your blog! :)

  2. Thanks Sherry! It's such a good investment i was surprised how much i use mine! xx

  3. I want to get the naked palette so bad!
    do you remember where you brought your b.b cream? I really want to pick one up because im so pale & eveyone says how good they are- but there's so many sellers on eBay!


  4. I got my first one from but it was around £14 + £9 shipping. So i gave ebay a shot since a seller i was looking at was recommended by a few people on Youtube, Bigclothcraft sells them for about £11 with free p&p from Korea. Takes about a month to arrive but it was genuine so i'm really pleased! Hope that helps!

  5. Ahhh that wee pocketwatch is so cute! Claire's are doing really nice Alice in Wonderland stuff the now!
